The United States Postal Service (USPS) has been announced as the most trusted government agency by the premier privacy trust study.
For the sixth consecutive year, USPS has managed to triumph over 75 federal organizations, with the US public trusting it to keep their information safe and secure.
According to the results of the study, the government-run agency managed to improve on its previous privacy trust score - which is currently 87 per cent.
Delores Killette, USPS' consumer advocate and vice president, said that having public trust was a vital component of offering a high level of service.
"It is the cornerstone of our mission to deliver reliable and affordable mail service to every American, as well as a great source of pride for postal employees across the country," she added.
"This survey clearly demonstrates that Americans continue to trust and depend on the Postal Service to protect their privacy."
Meanwhile, the postal service is expected to post a net loss of $1.9 billion for the six months leading up to March.
